LSU Shreveport Communications Department Presents Second Series Black Box Workshop Productions

April 19, 2013

Black Box Workshop Productions at LSUS will present three unusual one-act plays over the weekend of April 25-28.  The performance will take place at the Black Box in Bronson Hall, with curtain times at 7:30p.m. on April 25, 26, 27, and a 2:00 p.m. show on April 28.

Directed by LSUS alumnus Don McCoy, the April productions will feature Armed Robbery for Dummies by Paul R. Roman, A Matter of Husbands by Fernec Molnar, and a Tennessee Williams play, The Fat Man's Wife. 

Armed Robbery for Dummies features Paul Savage as Frank, a young man who contemplates armed robbery as a means of making his life more exciting.  Rounding out the small cast for this critically-acclaimed comedy are Nash Crow as George and Kimi McVay as Billie. 

A Matter of Husbands is a very short production of intrigue and seduction in which Kandace Grey plays an unnamed famous actress and Kimi McVay as an earnest young woman with some suspicions.  Set in a backstage dressing room of the early twentieth century, the surprise ending will leave audiences in stiches.

The Fat Man's Wife is the second Tennessee Williams one-act staged by the Black Box Workshop series. Veteran actress Sylvia Rachal plays socialite Vera Cartwright who is tempted to leave her wealthy, successful husband by an admiring young playwright, Dennis Merriwether, played by Nash Crow.  Joe Cartwright, the fat man of the title, is played by Don McCoy who is reprising the role from a New Orleans production.

Seating is limited and reservations are encouraged.  General box office is $10 per ticket.  This is a cash-only production and all proceeds go into a dedicated account to fund future productions.  LSUS students are admitted free with valid ID ten minutes before curtain as seats are available.
